“According to an inspection, most policemen who contracted the virus either visited Spain or attended a boxing stadium event in Bangkok or had a meal with an infected person,” he said.
The commissioner dismissed a rumour that a policeman from Taling Chan station contracted Covid-19 at a checkpoint.
He has ordered six officials related to the patient to go into self-quarantine for 14 days.
Taling Chan police station and nearby areas have already been sterilised.
“Police checkpoints in Bangkok are being sterilised on a regular basis to assure officials and people about their safety,” he said.
